Maybe, you would’ve saved him. But, in the end, he died never knowing what you could’ve meant to him.

He died because there was no one left to love, to love him. No one left that cared.

In the end, isn’t that what we all want?

Or is denial our comfortable way of saying, that we live and die alone and that no one can save us.

In the end, not everyone lives to see the beauty.

In the end, there was no one left to hold him, to love him. You were meant to be there…

you weren’t.

In the end, he waited and in the end, he never knew your name.

Close this book — or don’t. What is next for you? My friend, or my lover. Death can’t be the answer, it was never going to be. If only I could reach you, and tell you why its not worth it.

Would you have listened?

I don’t know if this was what you wanted, but not all endings are happy endings. Not everyone gets what they wished for. Not everyone lives to see the beauty. Not everyone wants to. Not everyone cares.

In the end, however, he never…


knew you existed.
